New LED’s and a 3D printed mount for a dollar store solar stake light.
For a buck these lights aren’t bad, but I wanted something nicer to mount on the back fence. Swapped the stock LED’s for some better 5mm piranhas and changed the inductor to get some more power. I designed a quick sconce that would match the twist lock on the lights and replace the diffuser and stake. Made these on Memorial Day weekend so I used some patriotic colors.
You can grab the 3D files if you want to print your own here:
